About the Magazine(S)
The Local, Perigord & Quercy is a free magazine, produced for both the English and (increasingly) French speaking population of the Perigord and Quercy regions of S W France. It covers sections of the Lot, Lot et Garonne and Tarn et Garonne and the huge Perigord region. Providing advertising solutions for local businesses and a local resource for both the English and French readers living in, having second homes in, or visiting this region of France.
The magazine is produced in full colour with a glossy cover and in an A5 format, a format that is designed to achieve a long shelf-life, it is easy to store, the type of magazine that people collect.
Each March (the Spring edition), June (the Summer edition), September (the Autumn edition) and December (the Winter edition) 12 000 copies are distributed through a series of display bins in supermarkets, bakers, cafes, tourist offices, butchers, hotels, banks, indeed where ever our readers are likely to find them. An increasing number of copies are now mailed directly to subscribers both here in France and to the UK, Spain, Ireland, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, USA, Australia, Switzerland and Germany.
The magazine has an estimated readership of over 105,000 people each year! Each edition features articles of local interest as well as useful advice and information. The magazines provide a perfect place for local organisations to let people know what they are doing and for local businesses to advertise their services. The advertising works well for both English and French businesses wanting to lets the expatriate community as well as the local population know about their goods or service.
Each edition is also available to read electronically on line and currently each electronic version is read over 3000 times. We hope that this simple on line facility means that everybody can keep in touch with the region and those living and working in it.
The magazine is happy to help charities promote their fund raising and raise awareness for their causes. We hope that people will get involved by producing articles for our readers, drawing on their own particular interests, experience or causes.
Writers are invited to send in their work - the aim is that the magazine will be a true reflection of the area and the people living here. We do ask that submitted work be original and that it is not submitted to simultaneous publications.
Please see our page on submitting editorial.
These two regions have been covered separately by their own magazine. The Winter/December 2018 editions will remain distinct. Then from the Spring 2019 edition - the two magazines will merge.
